Everything's comin' up daisies!

1992's Jigar is godawful, but given the year and that it stars Karisma Kapoor, you know there's going to be at least one gem for this site. Mucho credit to Aparna for pointing out the gem, a very special sari.

I don't want to ruin things for anyone who wants to see this movie - which you absolutely shouldn't do, by the way - but we do need a smidge of background. Ajay needs to train really, really hard at a special martial arts country house training camp thingy so he can take revenge on the guy with a Billy Ray Cyrus-worthy mullet.

Here's Ajay, meditating near a statue of Buddha.

Karisma has been sent by the sensei to unleash her lust for him to test his concentration. She shows up - as you do - in an orange sari bedecked with plastic daisies, wearing it so high that it looks like a flouncy miniskirt.

How could you not look?

Aside: for once the costume and wardrobe department is named in imdb, and it includes Digamber Rajapurkar, who was involved with Baadshah and Main Khiladi Tu Anari, both of which have made their appearance on this site. Hat trick!

Aparna said...

Thanks Beth...the moment I had seen that scene on TV, I was thinking - 'Now this is something that should be seen on bollywood fugly blog!'

The guy with a Billy Ray Cyrus-worthy mulle is Arjun. He actually starred in the Mahabharata as what else - Arjun!

Purchasing bleach to wash this out of my eyes - thank Gods for MasterCard.

Ah, she's still adorable. I like goofy girls.

i don't know if any of you folks watched Mahabharat as a kid in INdia. That guy with the mullet was beloved by many by playing Arjun.
